Email​: Deleted after 2 years (from last record of academic activity*)

* “Academic activity” means registering for a course, submitting an application for admission, or getting student status set to active. We check this at the end of every spring and fall term. At that time, if you have had no academic activity for two years, you’ll be notified by email that your account will be deleted in a month. You’ll receive a second notification email a week before the account is deleted.

NOTE
We do not recommend using WOU Gmail accounts as password recovery addresses on other sites or for any similar purpose. Should your WOU Gmail account be deleted according to the above policy, you may not be able to recover/reset passwords on those other sites. It is better to use a personal email account for such things, and either forward that account to your WOU account, or else forward your WOU account to it.
